The Japan Foundation is organizing a program for students studying Japanese language. The program labeled “Study-Tour Award for Outstanding Students of the Japanese Language” selected Ms. Sharon Kilafwakun of Pohnpei, FSM to participate in this remarkable program. The duration of the program will run from August 28, 2013 to September 11, 2013.


Ms.Kilafwakun will be given the opportunity to visit the attractive cities of Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima, and Tokyo. In addition, she will experience everyday life and habits of Japanese families through “home visit” where she will reside with a Japanese family.
